We’re delighted to be on tour today sharing Alice-Jane’s thoughts on Victory for the East End Angels by Rosie Hendry.
The war is almost over – and it’s up to the East End Angels to keep the home fires burning!
Frankie‘s fiance, a doctor, is away looking after the troops in Europe – will he return safely home?
Winnie has a happy secret – but can she carry on at Station 75 when she’s going to have a baby?
Bella is intrigued by her new friend, a Polish airman.
As the war ends and victory is in sight, what next for the girls of Station 75?
A gorgeously uplifting saga for fans of Ellie Dean and Donna Douglas
Victory for the East End Angels by Rosie Hendry is published by Sphere and is available to purchase in digital and paperback formats.
Rosie Hendry has once again created another world of troubles, challenges and love, faced by all the crew of the Station 75 ambulance crew of the Second World War.
A thoroughly enjoyable, and heart-warming tale of the lives of Frankie, Winnie, Bella and Rose, and how war time life has to keep going with a ‘stiff upper lip!’
As the horrors of war continue to perhaps get worse before they then get better and eventually lead to VE Day, each of the girls has personal challenges to face. This not only includes new love, but old love and the continued threat of losing those loved ones.
Yet as the station finally comes to a close as life has to move on after Victory, the realisation that life cannot go back to its pre-war style comes as a shock for some.
Rosie Hendry then allows the reader to continue with hope that the bond formed by these girls will never falter in the unknown future ahead.
I thoroughly recommend this great read!
Rosie Hendry lives by the sea in Norfolk with her husband, two
children, chickens and a snake. She’s worked in a variety of jobs from fruit
picking, waitressing, teaching and as a research scientist but has always
loving reading and writing. Starting off writing short stories for women’s
magazines, her stories have gradually become longer as her children have grown
Listening to her father’s tales of life during the Second World War sparked Rosie’s interest in this period and she’s especially intrigued by how women’s lives changed during the war years. She loves researching further, searching out gems of real-life events which inspire her writing.
When she’s not working, Rosie enjoys walking along the beach, reading and is grateful for the fact that her husband is a much better cook than her.
